Off with her head

For a special project, the second graders learned to do portraits in the style of Modigliani.  Touchingly, my son chose to draw his sister.

All of us thought it turned out well, except . . .

"I look at that picture in class every day, and I feel ashamed." -- The Artist, who to this day cannot understand what possessed him to represent the human neck as he did

"Why did you make my neck like that?" -- The Subject, hitting The Artist with a stuffed monkey

Art is thankless work.


  1. lol .. the Subject may kindly note that, despite the neck issue, the Subject's mouth is depicted by the Artist as a small ❤ .. a token of the Artist's everlasting devotion and affection for the Subject, no doubt

    1. Yes, I noticed that too and completely agree! You are a very astute commenter, I must say...
